Accreditation Check:

Once the data are collected, what should the therapist do with it? Documentation reveals that although some tests and measures are being used, the discussion often stops at the reporting of the results.

1. Analyzing Subjective and Objective Data

Therapy skill is magnified by the ability to assess data that is collected and give it value and meaning. Translation of subjective and objective data into patient specific detailed descriptions of functional limitations supports the provision of therapy services as skilled, reasonable and necessary.

2. Creating a Measurable and Meaningful Plan of Care

Once analysis has taken place, creating the framework for the care plan begins. The establishment of the frequency, duration and goals must be patient specific and supported by the assessment findings. Awareness of the larger plan is integral to supporting the work of the other disciplines involved with the care.
